From page B1 | March 17, 2014 |

FAIRFIELD — The Sac-Joaquin Section girls Division III championship game that never was tops this week’s local high school sports action.

Vanden, which lost in the SJS semifinals to Florin of Sacramento, hits the road to play at Modesto Christian, which won the section title, in the Northern California Division III semifinals, Tuesday.

The teams met in last year’s SJS semifinals with the Vikings outscoring the Crusaders 35-12 in the second half en route to a 66-50 victory. Vanden is also familiar with the Modesto Christian gym, having played in a tournament there last season.

The winner advances to play in Saturday’s Northern California championship game at another place with which Vanden is familiar: Solano County Athletic Conference rival American Canyon High.

Here’s a look at what else is going on this week:

Monday

Badminton action has Wood at Armijo and Rodriguez at Napa.

In nonleague baseball, Woodcreek of Roseville plays at Rodriguez, while Vintage heads to Vanden.
